    I worked at SoftLayer full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - There is no shortage of interesting problems. The issues the customers have are unique, and will definitely keep your plate full.
    - They have their own clothing line.

    Cons

    - The entire company does everything through the internal portal. This means none of it will apply to your future jobs.
    - No raises, and a "no counter" policy. This speaks worlds of what they think of their employees. We aren't worth the extra money, or trying to keep.
    - They put automation so high on the priority list that there are some serious fundamental flaws with the technology that get completely ignored.
    - A lot of Developers and Admins have a serious attitude problem.
    - They have a tattoo artist at company functions. These functions are also quite alcohol heavy. It was not uncommon for them to, encouraging drunk people to get a tattoo. The tattoo was free as long as the softlayer logo is somewhere in it. I find this completely irresponsible and childish.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You may want to look back at what The Planet did correctly. In the five years you didn't own that company, it made quite a bit of progress. During the merger, that was all thrown away. Simply mentioning the name "The Planet" got you nasty looks.

    Treat your employees how you want them to treat your company. If you treat them like they are expendable, they will walk... Especially if they are good at what they do.
